Skate Drag

I'm so sick of going through skate laces like underwear. This last week alone I had to replace the lace on my left skate 3 TIMES! Anyone else have this jacked up luck??? I tried sanding out the eyelets like I was told but I don't think that helped much. I use leather laces on my work boots and they have lasted me a good while even though sparks and hot metal fall on them throughout the day. However, I heard leather laces on skates break faster than the nylon ones we have. I will have to try them out anyway to test my theory. I've been doing my lace homework and I came across these Snakes! Laces by Old Kook. If worse comes to worse, I'll have to try these bad boys out!

  1. I have been using parachute cord and haven’t had much of a problem. Mind actually broke last night, I think our new floor has something to do with it because I had the same pair for over 6 months. Rev always has some in just about every color JAX has to offer… If he doesn’t have any leftover let me know and I’ll pick you up some when I go this Thursday. I was thinking about starting to lace mine from the second set of eyelets up, I don’t think it’ll make much difference as far as how the boot will fit. *Also you can buy those toe/boot guard things, I dunno what they are called but I know Urrkn’ has em on her skates!
